Lots Of Love

Happy Thursday!  I've got a sort of vintage card to share with you today.  My sweet DT Sister Janiel and I both posted today over on The Digi Bells Blog, and of course I am sharing my post here on my own blog as well. 

Now, this card was really kind of random, I had absolutely NO IDEA what I wanted to do with this darling new Digi.  Especially since I had just used her a little less than a week ago.  I think my brain has gone on vacation.  BUT.... believe it or not I used vintage Christmas papers for my card,  you'd never know, I guess it all depends on how you decorate it, right?

It just so happened that one of my holiday paper pads was sitting near by, and some little light went on in my head while I was coloring... Saying to myself.. "Hmmmm, I wonder what kind of papers I could use here, that are not necesarily Christmas themed.  Well....  You're about to find out what I found....

I wanted to make this image appear to be an old photo. I think it ended up looking that way, what do you think?  I even wrote a date very very tiny along the border of the "old photo" the way that old photos once had... 

I colored this adorable new Digi with my copics, and used my vintage photo distress ink for the edges.
This Digital Image is called "Lots of Love" and can be found in Elisabeth Bells Digital Collection.  Why not stop by and browse her awesome collection.  Something adorable just may catch your eye.  =)  Although I tend to think they are ALL adorable. 

I am also submitting this card into this weeks Digital Tuesday Challenge, since I believe that this is truly "Cute, and Girly".  What do you think?  I know, I know, it's not pink or purple or any of those realy "girly" colors, but who says that shades of red and blue aren't girly???  LOL

Thanks so much for stopping by today, why not hop over and see what Janiel has created using this very same image.  We love to work on the same image in order to show how many ways one image can be used.
